What Is ELR Test

The Event Loop Recorder (ELR) test is a diagnostic tool used to identify and analyze abnormal electrical activity in the heart. It is also known as a loop recorder test or implantable loop recorder test.

During the ELR test, a small device is implanted under the skin of the chest, typically on the left side. The device continuously monitors the heart's electrical activity and records any abnormal heart rhythms or symptoms that the patient experiences. The device is typically placed on an outpatient basis and does not require general anesthesia.

The ELR test is useful in diagnosing a range of heart conditions, including arrhythmias, syncope (fainting), and palpitations. It can be especially helpful in identifying irregular heart rhythms that may not occur frequently or regularly.

Our Process

What Conditions ABPM can Diangose

  • Arrhythmias: These are abnormal heart rhythms that can cause the heart to beat too quickly, too slowly, or irregularly. Some common arrhythmias include atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and bradycardia.
  • Syncope: Syncope, or fainting, can be caused by a variety of factors, including heart rhythm disturbances. The ELR test can help identify the cause of syncope by recording the heart's electrical activity during an episode.
  • Palpitations: Palpitations are sensations of a racing, fluttering, or pounding heartbeat. The ELR test can help diagnose the underlying cause of palpitations.
  • Other heart conditions: The ELR test may also be used to diagnose other heart conditions, such as cardiac conduction disorders or cardiomyopathy.
